Who we are?

We are an environmentally concerned business wanting to encourage greater stewardship of the Earth’s resources through recycling, composting, and reduction of waste in general. We want to be responsible and responsive members of the environmental community. Please, share any ways we can be more helpful.

What are we? 

We are a recycling service that started in To-peka, Kansas 1999 and have grown to over 800 costumers in both Topeka and Lawrence Kansas since. We offer curb or house side pickup on a monthly basis. Though we are primarily a residential service, we do have a few commercial costumers. Our prices are competitive and our service, according to our customers, is excellent. If you would like to know more about our service, either look at one of the brochures found at the top of the column to the left of this one or contact us by phone or e-mail.
